What We Accomplished Wednesday #55

Want to be a pin-up girl? Join the party, and if you are featured, I'll pin your project to my Green Willow Pond Features Board!

It's finally warming up here in northern Michigan. Wahoo! I got to spend an hour yesterday working in my flower beds and got all around the deck cleaned out and trimmed up.  There's more to do, but it felt so good to get out and dig in the earth!

Mushroom season is also here in this neck of the woods.  I am not a huge fan of morel mushrooms, but my parents are and dad wanted to go mushroom hunting.  With a weak heart, I won't let him go into the woods alone.  Up here there are miles of woods that would be so easy to get lost in.  Of course we took a compass and a GPS!  It's a good thing to, because everytime we thought we were going in the right direction we were way off.  It hasn't been warm enough to really pop them up until the last two days, so we are going again Tuesday morning (I'm typing this Monday night).

I've also been busy making things for my shop and already had a couple of sales, which sent me scrambling for ideas for packaging because I decided I didn't like my original ideas...yeah, I'm fickle sometimes.  I added these fun and functional work aprons to my shop this week.

So that has been my week.  By the looks of the link-ups you have had a busy week too!  Here are the top picks of last weeks links.

This wisdom based theme is such a cool idea for a graduation party.  Cindy from DIY Beautify had some awesome ideas for her son's party.  I love the wisdom tree and "pillars of education!" Her chalkboard is great too.

Celestina, of Southern Daydreams, shared her beautiful master bedroom and bath updates. Isn't it pretty? Her neutral background lets her add in whatever colors she wants.

I love this sweet vanity, brought back from the brink by Melanie, at Lost and Found Decor. She used milk paint in a color called dried lavender.  I love the color and the name!

Andi, from Delusions of Ingenuity, painted this wingback chair while her husband was out of town. Didn't it turn out fabulous? You have to go read her story...she is hilarious!

I am one of those rare people who dislike the smell of lilacs.  As in it makes me sick.  But I adore the way they look and the color.  I just have to enjoy them from a distance. Janet from Rosemary and Thyme, set a beautiful table with all the colors of her lilacs.  Isn't it dreamy?

We are a family on the go these days, and as much as I love to have a sit down dinner with all of us around the table, the reality is that it just doesn't happen very often at this stage in our lives.  So when I saw this Asian chicken salad recipe share by Nici, of Posed Perfection, I knew it would be perfect for fixing ahead so that everyone can eat when they show up.  It sound delicious!

Now it's your turn.  Show us what you've accomplished.  Can't wait to see what you've been up to!

The Simple and Easy Rules

1. Only projects you have made/accomplished pretty please. Items for sale are okay, as long as they are in tutorial form, and linked to your blog post.  No links to shops or Etsy stores, or round-up posts of others projects please.  Link up to 3 posts - please link posts new to this party.

Most importantly, go visit some of the links because otherwise it wouldn't be a party would it?

    So happy our weather up here has improved, Debbie.

  19. What cute aprons, Deborah, and perfectly handy for crafting and gardening. :)
    The morels are about finished here. I guess there's a big temperature difference between us. I have several friends who often hunt...but I have never tasted one. LOL! Sorry the aroma of the lilacs is so displeasing to you. I have a keen sense of smell and it doesn't take much to be overpowering.

    Hope your week is filled with beauty and creativity.


Thank you for taking time to leave me a comment. They make my day!
